Even if you've been recording for a long time, this book serves as a great reference for producing music. Perfect for those starting out, it gives a great overview of the producers role, along with great advice on how to deal with a multitude of situations, and how to run effective sessions. I run a recording studio but I'm not actively involved in sessions, so I bought this book to help fill in a few blanks, and to help me better communicate ideas with my engineer/producer and highlight areas where we could improve the experience for the artists who book with us. Definitely worth a read.

The Music Producers Handbook 5 Aug. 2010
By Urban Florjan i - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book. I wanted some overstanding about what is the producers role. I come from Eu country called Slovenia and we have a lot of music producers but it seems to me that they are not doing their job correctly. So i orded this book and and started reading and got all answers to my questions. Now i realy understand the role of a music producer and more. The workflow, tips and tricks. Interwies with the best in the biz. And on more thing Bobby has a real good way of explaining things it is a easy reading full of interesting issues. Some people are real lucky to have a mentor I am not one of them, with this book and the video Bobby really paved the way for me!
Big up to Bobby Ownsinski

The Music Producer's handbook. 5 Jun. 2013
By marco antonio castellanos velasquez - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been studing music production for almost 4 years, and I have never found a source like Owsinski's book. In this book you'll find every thing you've been looking for, from the basic concepts to very interesting and important lessons, about how to write a song, how to make a musical arrangement, etc. I'm so very glad to have found this treasure, I recomend it, no problem at all, you will enjoy it, I'm sure about that.

This is why you have a bookshelf. 15 Nov. 2013
By Don DiPietro - Published on
Format: Paperback
You could take fifteen years, working every day, to get the information and insights included in this book. Reading this book will not make you an experienced producer overnight, but it will get you there faster. And not reading this book will cost you in terms of not having something vital at your fingertips when you need it. And you won't even know what you're missing.

Why take the risk. If you are serious about the music business -- as a producer or a musician -- you should own this book.

Excelent guide with a lot of deatails 30 Sept. 2013
By F. Fonseca Espinoza - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As always Bob Owsinski delivers a great book filled with details.

As a hobbyist sound engineer and producer this book explained every single detail that has to be considered in the process of producing an album, budgets, sample rates, methods etc. Also The explanations are very simple and very work oriented.

If someone is interested in the process of producing and recording this is a very nice asset.

Used it for a report a year ago (got an A+) and I still come back to it fairly often to review and re-read. I definitely recommend it.
